Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 09/06/15

This week’s scripture is from 1 John:

Jesus Christ 4“God is love.” (1 John 4:16b)

When the great Bible scholar was asked what was the most profound truth he had learned from all of his many years of reading and studying the scriptures, he paused for a long moment, then said, “Jesus loves me, this I know for the Bible tells me so.” What an amazing and singular truth. John says love is not that we loved God, but God loved us and He sent His one and only son Jesus to show us the extent of His love, and to show us how to love as God loves, to love God and to love others as ourselves, to love our brothers and sisters that we might be known by our love and that our love might bring others to Christ.

May the Lord fill you with His love and may that love overflow on others.
